Microgreens and micro herbs are the seedling versions of leafy greens, vegetables, and herbs. They are a few days older than "sprouts".
As shown in a 2012 USDA study and in several studies since, microgreens and micro herbs are extremely nutritious, in some cases up to 40x more nutritiously dense than their mature versions.
Microgreens and micro herbs are very delicate and can even start going bad on supermarket shelves. Growing microgreens in your home means you get the freshest microgreens and micro herbs when you harvest.
HAMAMA's microgreen kits don't use any soil, pesticides, or fertilizers so you can trust that your microgreens and micro herbs are clean and safe to eat. Also, growing microgreens indoors means you don't have to worry about pests eating your greens before you do.
We choose the best microgreen seeds for our Seed Quilts to ensure you have a successful grow and delicious fresh microgreens.

Microgreens and micro herbs are the seedling versions of leafy greens, vegetables, and herbs. They are a few days older than "sprouts". Microgreens are considered a superfood and are a great source of nutrition. They only take a week to grow so you can plant and harvest every week with HAMAMA's microgreen kits.
Microgreens or micro herbs are the most common names for the seedling versions of leafy greens, vegetables, and herbs. Those are the most common names, but sometimes they are sometimes called mini greens, micro vegetables, or even micro leaves and micro plants. Microgreens are younger than baby greens so the name refers to the even smaller leaves that are grown by day 7-10 on the seedling.
The best thing about growing microgreens indoors is that you don't have to worry about bad weather or pests. Even if you live somewhere with hot summers or cold winters, you can still have fresh microgreens whenever you want.
The most popular type is definitely sunflower microgreens (we're working on it) but the HAMAMA team would definitely recommend the arugula microgreens, radish microgreens, and micro salad mix.
Technically, the HAMAMA kit is hydroponic. This just means that it only needs water for growing microgreens. Our kit replaces the soil with natural coconut fiber to give the roots something to grow into. Hydroponic microgreens are no different than microgreens grown in soil. They taste delicious, are also good for you, and you don't have to clean any dirt off before eating.
